    Possibly not - if you've been allowed yr 2 entry because your PGCE exempts you from some credits (and so you're looking for funding for something that isn't a full 150 credits masters degree) then the PGL isn't available - they've specifically excluded eligibility for courses where students are "topping" up another postgraduate qualification.

    Hi Rosieatuni

    To be eligible for the postgraduate loan your course must fall under the following:

    • a full-time course lasting 1 or 2 years; or
    • a part-time course lasting 2 academic years which has a 1 year Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
    • a part-time course lasting 3 or 4 academic years which has a 2 year FTE; or
    • a part-time course lasting up to 3 years* which has no FTE course.

    Thanks
